ALA CR+

ALA CR+ is an alpha-lipoic acid and chromium picolinate supplement.


Alpha-lipoic acid (or lipoic acid, ALA) is a fatty acid found naturally in cells. The human body only produces small amounts of it, thus making supplementation necessary. Lipoic acid has anti-catabolic functions, it saves protein and it counteracts glycation, which occurs when parts of glucose molecules react with the protein tissues and damage them. Lipoic acid is primarily involved in the metabolism of glucose and fat into energy. It also improves the utilization of carbohydrates and stabilizes blood sugar. Keeping blood sugar levels constant is very important when trying to maintain lean body mass, lose weight and stay in shape. Normally glucose gets converted into fat if the body does not use it. However, lipoic acid is able to convert excess carbohydrates into muscle energy rather than lipids, or fat. Our muscles can increase the conversion of glucose into ATP, resulting in less fat and a much higher energy potential. Its antioxidant function is also particularly effective because it is an active substance in both lipid and aqueous phases and has the ability to regenerate other antioxidants (Vitamin A, C, E, coenzyme Q and glutathione). It also a great promoter of glutathione levels and it increases its availability, which is a very important function considering the fact that glutathione is the most powerful intracellular antioxidant. Lipoic acid is a powerful antioxidant that is very effective in fighting against free radicals and counteracting the aging process.


ALA CR + also contains chromium, which is an essential trace element for our body. It is especially known for its ability to enhance insulin function and improve the metabolism of carbohydrates, proteins and fats, which results in lower blood sugar levels and weight loss. Moreover, chromium also helps improve muscle tone, plays a role in proteins synthesis by bonding with RNA and it also transports proteins in the blood along with the iron. The chromium in this product is in the form of chromium picolinate. This is to ensure a good bioavailability and to decrease the risk of toxic effects (as could be the case for hexavalent chromium).
